Revels Family Book Club

Read multicultural novels with your tweens at Revels!

Reading is a fantastic way to explore the world around us without having to spend money on a plane ticket. Targeted for ages 10 through 14 (5th-8th graders) with a parent, Revels International Book Club will introduce readers to the unique cultures of the world through literature. Each month, we will focus on a book from a different country and gather once a month to discuss the book and assign the next month’s book.

Enjoy award-winning children’s novels — journey to Denmark in Number the Stars by German-descendant author Lois Lowry, meet Katie in Kira-Kira by Japanese American author Cynthia Kadohata, explore a journey through verse in Inside Out and Back Again by Vietnam-born American author Thanhha Lai, and take a multicultural journey in Pam Munoz Ryan’s Echo.

We will also share stories from Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and other regions of our beautifully diverse world.

Wishing you could bring your younger children? Never fear–see our Revels World Story Time sessions for younger kids.
